¶ While hard pine is fairly plentiful and lends, itself well either to the sulphuric acid treat- ment or to simple staining, we do not recommend it for interior woodwork, as it costs no less than other woods we have mentioned and is less interesting in color and grain. But if it should be preferred, we would recommend that it be treated with the sulphuric acid, which gives a soft gray tone to the softer parts of the wood and a good deal of brilliancy to the markings.
